this fight of the middle class comes at a time when the president is on the defensive and lost some ground in key areas. cnn orc poll tonight shows the president's lead is half a point outside the margin of error. last month he was leading with nine points. we told you last night about a pughel poll which shows romney leading obama. you can see also barely outside the margin of error. in that same poll, the president's 18-point lead among women disappeared. he's now running even with romney. so who is winning this vital war over middle class tax cuts? rah ham salon joins us and john avlon, senior political columnist at "newsweek" and "the daily beast." this debate over $5 trillion and what you're trying to do and on the backs of the middle class, this isn't just about a number and who is using a number specifically in what way. it goes to the heart of whether the president is going to win. >> in 2008, barack obama did something incredibly brilliant. he actually managed to outflank the republicans on taxes, which was their biggest, most potent issue for literally decades, by saying, hey, if
like this. he would maintain our current level of defense spending over the next eight years. he would spend way more than a cold war-style drawdown. way more than the sequester, but he would treat the budget as the new normal with slight increases over time. that's the obama plan for the biggest single thing on which we spend discretionary money. mr. obama's opponents, on the other hand, the math ticket, the hard-nosed practical numbers guys, their plan for defense spending looks like this. ta da! that's what mitt romney is proposing for military spending. an otherwise enormous amount of money. this is what they are planning on doing. the highest level of military spending since the korean war. because, you know, forget your hope and change. what the country needs is math, math, math. how does the ticket plan to balance this giant plus sign contained in their plan? this massive increase in government spending. where does the minus come from if they want to increase spending by that much? this was the scene today in a place called van meter, iowa. just outside des moines. this is what
look and feel for shoppers. >> susie: a deal to create a new defense giant is dead. earlier today, britain's b.a.e. systems and europe's e.a.d.s. called off their merger plans. both sides blamed concerns by european governments, especially germany, over how the potential tie-up would be structured. the deal between e.a.d.s. and b.a.e. systems would have created the world's biggest defense company by sales. some industry watchers say it could have spurred more consolidation among american defense companies. >> if this merger had come together it would have been pressure on the u.s. defense contractors to get together, to consolidate, as a counter balance to the new combination. but without the merger there is not a lot of pressure to consolidate. in fact, if we get a romney presidency there may be almost no pressure on defense contractors. susie: as for shares of the big u.s. defense contracrs today, they followed the broader market lower. boeing, general dynamics, lockheed martin and northrop grumman all down about 1%. >> susie: for many americans, >> susie: for many americans, co

rights. and we should not be imposing these devastating defense cuts because what that does, when we equivocate on our values, when we show that we're fighting our own defense it makes us more weak. it projects weakness, and when we look weak our adversaries are much more willing to test us-- >> with all drew respect, that's a bunch of malarkey. >> and why is that so? >> not a single thing he said is rack rat. >> first of all,-- >> be specific. >> i will be very specific. number one, this lecture on embassy security. the congressman here cut embassy security in his budget by $300 million below what we asked for, number one. so much for the embassy security piece. number two, governor romney before he knew the facts before he even knew that our ambassador was killed, he was out naiking a political statement which was panned by the media around the world. and this talk about this-- this weakness. i don't understand what my friend's talking about here. we-- this is a president who has gone out and done everything he has said he was going to do. this is a guy who has repaired our allianc
of the charges date back into the '90s. >>> and defense secretary leon panetta expressing his disappointment with karzai. karzai wants the u.s. to send weapons and planes to the air force, but leon panetta told them karzai should not be complaining. >> we have lost over 2,000 u.s. men and women. we have lost forces there, and the afghans have lost a large number of their forces in battle. those lives were lost fighting the right enemy, not the wrong enemy. and i think it would be helpful if the president every once in a while expressed his thanks for the sacrifices that have been made by those who have fought and died for afghanistan. rather than criticizing them. >> let's talk a little politics now, you can score one for the obama campaign in ohio. at least every ohio voter can now vote the weekend before the election. the federal judge sided with president obama's campaign and overturned a restriction on early voting that the state republicans had put in place. it would have limited the weekend voting to u.s. military families and people living overseas. >>> and a cap on what many are call
are the events and they would have all failed all other things almost defenseless. you almost can't defense yourself at all and those things are true. all the banks would have failed. some of these banks -- jpmorgan is important but so is wells fargo. they did not need t.a.r.p. to succeed her they would make loans and do it they had to do in times of need for america and so it's hard to make the case. i don't know how to do it but i'm not going to give up. i love this country too much. i am not giving up. that is why i did some things like this. my chairman's letter, which i get help from the lady sitting right behind you in fact and my wife, but i describe capital markets. what is market-making? is market-making in lumber, aluminum, brass -- not grass, grass grass. [laughter] marketing is making everything. there was market-making in communist china and the soviet union. the markets in cuba. i don't know if people think. you can sell your goods for a better price over here, go over here. that is what people do. that is what each and every one of you would do. it's not like there is a moral
of residents and the natural environment. >> reporter: defense ministers confirm there's no change to the exit strategy. they say that 75% of the population of afghanistan lives in areas where order is maintained by police forces. nato secretary general says the thdrawal pn is based on an objective analysis of the situation in the country. >> it's not because eyes have partners rush for the exit. it's not because of lack of cohesion within our coalition. on the contrary. we have agreed to hand over to the afghans and as they step forward, our troops can step backwards. >> reporter: about 100,000 troops, including the u.s. are deployed. they are training police personnel to fill the void after troops leave the country. trust between the two sides is being undermined by a series of recent insider attacks. international soldiers have been killed by afghan military or personnel or people wearing afghan uniforms. at the meeting the defense ministers agreed to continue task after pulling troops out. they also decided to draw up concrete withdrawal plans by early next year including the number of per
military in tunisia as a major issue. in libya there was no ministry of defense under gadhafi, and we don't even have a minister of defense in the newly-reformed, so curbing military power in the narrow sense of an army isn't the main issue in tunisia either, and i actually think -- excuse me, libya -- and i actually think that probably, you know, 95% of the 250,000 or so libyans walking around with weapons are trying to keep the peace, not make mischief. .. and the security forces and in defense of the regime that is where the action is, not in the military. you're the geopolitics guy. >> i thought the worst-case scenario for the algerian military is instability in northern mali. and you know what is going on in the eastern front with libya. i know that some troops had to be redeployed in the eastern front because of the, the traffic of armaments and drugs and other issues. this is the worst case so. >> i just want to take the opportunity to answer a question that hasn't been asked. but, this is something that i was thinking about. it's slightly related to your question but it's somethin

, what is the matter with you. what i would say in joe biden's defense and i would challenge anyone within the sound of my voice to send me a note, who was voted out of office because they were too arrogant or too condescending. i don't know that person. >> wait a minute. people don't like--people don't like condescension. but that's not what i think was going on here. you know what bothered me, and had he done this move once or twice, you know, it can be very effective. to do it constantly like that, it bothers me in two ways. first of all this is not a good way to win over voters who are on the defense. second of all imagine it turns all sorts of people off not just me. there are some midwestern states that are not entirely red you know. think about it this way. think about the president. what if we as a nation decided yeah that is the way our presidential debates should be conducted. these guys, you constantly talk over one another ridicule one another. >> there is that, thomas, but then there is the idea of the soft peddling, the happy warrior. when they got into the substance o

, foreign policy and defense reporter for politico. tim, good morning. what do you expect romney to focus on in his speech at the virginia military institute on monday? >> yeah. the virginia military institute speech is going to focus primarily on foreign policy. it's going to be a big, broad speech about what he would do as commander in chief, and you can expect him to go straight to benghazi, to go straight to what he views as the president's inability to kind of take an aggressive foreign policy stance on the global stage. no doubt he is going to mention veterans, and i think he will also see him talk about his plan to raise defense spending. up to 4% of gdp, which is higher than it is even now. >> this is certainly about posturing, about sounding presidential, but how does this compare to president obama's last major foreign policy speech, the one that he maude at the united nations general assembly? >> it's going to be quite different. i mean, the president is probably more conciliatory and mitt romney is going to take a more aggressive tone towards arab states. he is going to ramp u
